Railroad, as Wheeling, Parkersburg, Grafton, and their intermediate points are already possessed by troops. This movement, with the occupation of the points just cited, will leave only the small territory between Martinsburg and the Point of Rocks (between 30 or 40 miles,) in possession of the Confederate troops. It is supposed that the Federal armies are accompanied by corps of sappers and miners, with bodies of laborers to repair destroyed bridges, railroad tracks and telegraph lines, to be used by the Government. We hear that Gen. Scott, immediately on learning that the Maryland Insane Asylum at Catonsville, had been occupied by Federal troops, without authority, ordered their withdrawal. It is supposed they will leave today. An advance guard of sixty United States troops were at Hallafield, above Ellicott's Mills, yesterday morning. The picket guard, five miles below Annapolis Junction, was fired into by some unknown parties Wednesday night. No one was hurt.

present, but in consideration of the prompt action of Col. Jones in ordering an investigation, the day trains only will be run to the West, and the regular morning train will leave daily as usual, thus avoiding night travel. Yesterday afternoon the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company received notification at 1 P. M. to prepare trains for the transportation of two regiments of troops to Washington, but it was 6 o'clock before the trains were needed. The regiments were the 12th, of Onondaga, N. Y., Col. E. L. Walrath, and the 13th, of Rochester, N. Y. Col. Quimby, averaging 800 men each, fully armed and equipped, and accompanied by band and drum corps. The regiments embarked at Williamsport, Pa., at 8 A. M. yesterday morning, on two trains of passenger and freight cars, and were brought to the Bolton depot in this city, under the personal supervision of James C. Clarke, the Superintendent of the Northern Central Road. The first train, bearing the 12th regiment, reached the Bolt

M. yesterday afternoon had not arrived at 10 last night. It was supposed that other bridges had probably been destroyed, but no definite intelligence could be learned, as the wires were not working. By well-confirmed reports from Pennsylvania, we learn that in addition to Frederick, Williamsport and Hagerstown, Hancock and Cumberland, Md., were both about to be occupied by Federal troops. It would appear evident that the Federal Government is determined, as part of its military plans, to take entire possession of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, as Wheeling, Parkersburg, Grafton, and their intermediate points are already possessed by troops.

assenger cars, five leaving their mark. One ball struck near the head of a lady, Mrs, Murdock, of New York, taking out a large piece of the woodwork of the car; a second passed in close proximity to the hand of a gentleman, a hotel keeper at Harper's Ferry, carrying away several slats of the window; while a third ball entered the water-closet, perforating four partitions. The train, previous to the firing, had been delayed several hours beyond its regular time, caused by the interruptions at Harper's Ferry. Point of Rocks, and elsewhere, where the railroad track is destroyed, and its approach at an unusual boat no doubt gave color to the report that a special train with a Confederate force was approaching. The train was promptly stopped on being fired into, but was suffered to come on to Baltimore, arriving about daylight. The passengers exhibited several splinters from the cars track, and detailed their escape with much feeling. Col. Jones, the commander of the post at
